Moving To The Big South Fork, Tennessee: Step Three Is Building A Cabin

By
Real Estate Agent with Tennessee Recreational Properties

If you're thinking of moving to the Big South Fork, here in Jamestown, Tennessee, and you've already bought a piece of land and had it cleared, step three is building a cabin. The Big South Fork national park offers the best trail riding east of the Mississippi, so homeowners don't want to be slaves to upkeep and maintenance. ..they want to spend their time riding, hiking and enjoying the myriad of outdoor activities that the Big South Fork offers.

Cabins tend to have a rustic look, understated and generally unassuming.  Metal roofs are common, for longevity and low maintenance. Green is the predominant color, although you'll find red and the new copper color that is so appealing. Rooflines generally have a "broken back" which creates the ubiquitous wraparound porches so common in this vicinity. Given that the terrain is rolling and often drops away, you may want to take advantage of the opportunity to situate the structure over a full basement.

Be sure to have a well-thought-out "master plan" when siting your buildings as you'll need to allow plenty of room to turn your rig and park your horse trailer. Speaking of trailers, friends who come to visit are likely to have a living-quarter trailer and may need an RV hookup. Most places here have one or two RV sites so, while you're in the process of construction, you may want to put in an RV dump station connected to your septic as well as a hydrant and an electric outlet for these external guest quarters!

There are a number of equestrian communities in the Big South Fork area such as Spruce Creek Acres, Ridge Top Acres, Rockhouse Ranch, The Highlands and White Oak. You may want to drive through and see what others have done; you will surely come away with a notebook full of good ideas. Home is where the heart is and you'll soon feel at home, here in the heart of horse country!

Additional Information

I live minutes from the Cumberland Trailhead into Big South Fork National Park, in Spruce Creek Acres, an equestrian community that abuts the park itself. Horses are a major part of daily life here and this is a very active, supportive horse-oriented community. It is a gift to work as a realtor here, listing horse properties and selling horse properties to horse people! We joke that I've probably done more real estate on horseback than off! If you want to "live where you love to ride," let me help you find YOUR Big South Fork horse property .
